PULLMAN, Wash. – Walk up to Roberto and he blurts out, “Hello! Go Cougs!” Walk away and he waves good-bye. Say, “I love cats,’’ and he breaks into a song – about cats.
Roberto, a 3-foot-tall robot that talks, sings, dances, follows commands and interacts with people, is the work of two teams of electrical engineering and computer engineering students at Washington State University. They hope he’s coming soon to a recruitment fair near you.
